Gas savings surprise

Car buyers looking to shrink their gasoline bill by downsizing will find that a number of small vehicles pack a painful punch at the pump.

Some fuel-efficient new cars or crossovers could prove costlier than expected because they were engineered to run on premium gasoline.

For example, Smart recommends that its Fortwo, the smallest new car sold in the United States, use premium gas, as do a number of more mainstream vehicles -- including a number of crossovers and midsize family sedans. That may come as a surprise to potential customers attracted to saving money with the tiny car that gets a combined 36 m.p.g.

Premium currently costs 42 cents a gallon more than regular gasoline. That can add $4 to $6 to every fill-up and hundreds of dollars to an annual fuel bill.
